AmandaLynn0220 gave Cafe Di Scala 1 Star

I wouldn't know how to rate this restaurant. The message I left to make a reservation was "lost", wait, no, maybe they couldn't understand my phone number. Long silence... a new female takes my call... (see full review)

AmandaLynn0220 gave Centro 5 Stars

I love this place! Great service, great food, and they know how to make a bellini. The pizza is always perfect and their butternut squash soup was the best I've ever had (seasonal).

AmandaLynn0220 gave Waterfront Seafood Market 5 Stars

My favorite restaurant, period. The clam chowder is perfect and so are the captain crunch sushi rolls. The staff is great (especially at the fish counter) and the food is ALWAYS wonderful. I don't ... (see full review)

AmandaLynn0220 gave Romano's Macaroni Grill 3 Stars

Highly overrated! I don't know why anyone goes here, honestly. The menu is VERY limited and the food isn't good. I like their use of rosemary.....that's all.

AmandaLynn0220 gave Splash Seafood Grille 5 Stars

It's not the Waterfront, that's for sure, but this place has a lot to offer. Be prepared to pay for a nice meal...I thought the food was great when I went, but I'm afraid I haven't gone back and I do... (see full review)

AmandaLynn0220 gave Scornovacca's North 5 Stars

Some of the best pizza I have ever had. Great ingredients and crust! I've never had a bad experience with them.

AmandaLynn0220 gave La Pizza House 2 Stars

Dirty, dirty, dirty. I don't care how good their food might be (but isn't) this place is too gross to return again. My parents love it and they used to drag me along when I was a kid. The scurvine... (see full review)

AmandaLynn0220 gave Daytona's Sports Bar 2 Stars

This place is a cheap version of Hooters. The decor is tacky, the waitresses are tacky, and the service is poor. Not recommended unless you want cold, lacking food served by trashy waitresses with r... (see full review)

AmandaLynn0220 gave 801 Steak & Chop 5 Stars

I can't believe a couple of these reviews....this is the BEST place to go for a steak in the Des Moines area, hands down. I love everything about this restaurant. The staff is great and so is the ov... (see full review)

AmandaLynn0220 gave El Mariachi 4 Stars

Great for a quick lunch. I've been here for lunch 5-10 times and the service is always great. Some dishes lack flavor, though...

AmandaLynn0220 gave Salsarita's Fresh Cantina 3 Stars

Not bad, especially if you're in the military. They have a 1/2 off deal for personnel in uniform. I love that they have fresh cilantro...not loving the lazy staff.....

AmandaLynn0220 gave Trostel's Greenbriar 5 Stars

Incredible restaurant! I was one of the 70-some odd people involved in the infamous food poisoning incident a few months ago and I still recommend this place. (you cant hold one employees negligence... (see full review)

AmandaLynn0220 gave Bandana's BBQ 4 Stars

This place has okay BBQ. The brisket isn't worth trying, but the chicken is great.

AmandaLynn0220 gave Texas Roadhouse 2 Stars

Not worth the crowds or the wait. Always packed (I dont know why). Decent food, though.

AmandaLynn0220 gave Iowa Machine Shed 5 Stars

Nice atmosphere, fair prices, great food. One of the few places you can find liver and onions (if you want it, that is) :D Homemade dishes, definitely recommended....

AmandaLynn0220 gave Taki Japanese Steakhouse 5 Stars

Great restaurant! Tied with the Waterfront as far as sushi goes (awesome). Really busy and you kind of feel out of place if you're waiting to be seated, not much room there...oh, try the tempura shr... (see full review)
